Comments In figure 4 the cell appears pear-shaped, 700nm being the length of the pear and 300nm the maximal width. See PMID 21382496 p.502 fig.6A where using the scale bar (50 nm) the length and width (at widest points in base of pear) would be ~470nm and ~255nm, respectively, figure link- link For length and width of 600nm and 300nm, respectively, of pear-shaped M. mobile see PMID 20533876 p.522 fig.2C figure link - link
